New sentencing guidelines introduced for child cruelty offences and failing to protect girls at risk from female genital mutiliation

Source By: Sentencing Guidelines

The Sentencing Council have published new guidelines for how those guilty of child guilty offences should be sentenced. It covers three offences: 

  • cruelty to a child;
  • causing or allowing a child to die or suffer serious physical harm; and
  • failing to protect a girl from the risk of female genital mutilation (FGM).

Publication of the guideline marks the first time that there has been sentencing guidance for the offences of causing or allowing a child to die or suffer serious physical harm and failing to protect a girl from the risk of FGM. Sentencing Council member Mrs Justice Maura McGowan said: "Child cruelty offences vary greatly. They can range from a one-off lapse of care which puts a child at risk of harm to a campaign of deliberate cruelty which leads to serious injury or even death. This new guideline will help ensure sentences that reflect what the offender has done and the harm to the child."
